Home Buyers Survey in Mersea Island

HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Mersea Island and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Mersea Island property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Mersea Island property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for site clearance) and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report will contain a property valuation and a Reinstatement Cost as part of the report. To estimate the value of the property your surveyor will refer to knowledge of Mersea Island and other considerations about the property for instance: general condition The surveyor will also consider materials used and will make certain key assumptions, for example there are no damaging materials.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation is also on the basis that there is an absence of any serious legal issues like the property being sold with vacant possession. Such concerns will be clarified by your conveyancer.

Further area conjectures, for example services, are made in addition to Mersea Island environmental problems like intrusive noises or smells, also being considered.

Building Surveys on flats 1

Is it best to spend a bit more on full structural survey prior to buying a doer-upper, sixties garden flat in Mersea Island?

The Full Structural Survey is now called the Building Survey. Commission a RICS Building Survey if you are contemplating the flat referred to. A HomeBuyer Report will suffice if investigating a post 1950s Mersea Island property assembled from standard construction materials. There are some limitations exist with any survey as a qualified surveyor will not be able to open up the fabric of the flat for example, or inspect no ladder available for flat roofs. Also flats often involve shared parts of the building which cannot always be accessed. , and your appointed surveyor can only scrutinise the area within identifiable boundary of the flat,, he may give details of shared sections of the property for example any alarm system.
